(Edmonton, Alberta) – Alberta’s life sciences industry continues to be a major growth, diversification, employment and innovation engine for the province of Alberta. With more than $1 billion in revenues generated by Alberta companies and 4,600 employees, the industry has demonstrated strong performance and continued positive momentum, as outlined by a joint report being launched today by BioAlberta and Deloitte.
Jeremy Webster, National Biotechnology Leader for Deloitte at Deloitte LLP, and Mel Wong, President and CEO of BioAlberta, will present the findings of the 2015 Alberta State of the Industry Report in Edmonton on November 3rd at the Royal Glenora Club [11160 River Valley Road, Edmonton] at 5:00 pm, and in Calgary on November 5th at the University of Calgary, Dining Centre [2500 University Drive NW] at 4:00 pm.
